More about Louis Roederer Cristal Brut 2006 ...

Harvest notes ... The weather in April and May was mild, and June sunny with high temperatures. Thunderstorms at the beginning of July resulted in hail damage in certain parts of Champagne, however, the month was one of the hottest on record, helping grapes to ripen quickly. Much of August was mainly rainy and humid, worrying growers.

"Nearly perfect" weather during the harvest period saved the day and "resulted in an excellent ripening process" with Chardonnay doing particularly well.

95 points Wine Spectator; " This elegant version shows beautiful texture and a sense of finesse despite the underlying power of vibrant acidity and smoky minerality. The palate offers a finely layered mesh of blackberry, poached pear, almond pastry, lemon zest and pickled ginger flavors. Drink now through 2028.  (11/ 2013)

House Style: A passion for great wines and a desire to compensate for the limits that the "château policy" naturally imposes on the development of Louis Roederer Champagne have, over the years, driven Jean Claude and then Frédéric Rouzaud to acquire an exclusive group of properties around the Champagne House in Reims which, although managed truly independently, share the same philosophy of excellence, and today make up the "Louis Roederer Group".

Initially founded as Dubois Père & Fils in 1776, Louis Roederer inherited the company from his uncle in 1833, renamed it eponymously, and set out to target markets abroad. With concentrated efforts in several countries, including Russia. Tsar Nicholas II nominated Louis Roederer as the official wine supplier to the Imperial Court of Russia,[1] though the Russian Revolution and the U.S. Prohibition caused financial difficulties during the early 20th century, Roederer was re-established as a leading Grandes Marques producer and remains in descendants Rauzaud ownership. Cristal is a precursor prestige cuvée brand and was made commercially available in 1945.

Did you know? Did you know that Loius Roederer Cristal is the only Champagne to have a flat bottom? It's because the Czar was paranoid that somebody was going to assasinate him, by putting a bomb into the punt (recess) of a bottle of Champagne. The design was therefore changed to a flat bottomed bottle.

A little more info; Non-vintage Champagnes can improve with ageing, typically 2-3 years, while vintages can develop over several years (5-30 years). The most exquisite and often top-priced expression of a house’s style is referred as Prestige Cuvée. Famous examples include Louis Roederer's Cristal, Moët & Chandon's Dom Pérignon, and Pol Roger's Cuvée Sir Winston Churchill
